Not a BF fan, but such an interesting read nonetheless!

I hope the single player is good and they got some good co-op. I'm buying CoD because of this!

Campaign was atrocious on BF3, and worse than most games I played. It was a C- for lack of effort!
The_KELRaTH  +   855d ago
While I agree that the last CoD SP game was really impressive even compared to previous CoD titles and BF3 SP was rather basic the longevity of these fps games lies in their multiplayer.
hiredhelp  +   855d ago
Omg seriously everybody gota compare sp to cod cos thats how it really is.. The SP was just fine and no bf4 does not have co-op they dropped it sadly.
PeaSFor  +   855d ago
you have to ride in a special bus each morning if you really buy a battlefield game for the single player.
UltimateMaster  +   855d ago
Such a huge minimal requirement between Vista and Win 8.

Great read overall.

Battlefield games never had campaigns, until they felt they had to compete with COD
awi5951  +   854d ago
Lies all lies i played Bf4 beta on ultra at 50 fps on 2 7850 2Gb and a 8320 a very cheap build at 1080p res
. The cards cost 150 each and the cpu is 144. And the game isnt optimized yet.

Graphics nor gameplay is worth $4500 dollars. You pc guys keep saying its cheap. Yeah right
africanos23  +   855d ago
Thats $4500 for 5 cpus , 2 motherboards , 2 high end gpus and one kick ass monitor.
CrusRuss  +   854d ago
What was the point of this benchmarking effort? They only tested the gtx 770 what about everyone else with older gpus like gtx 580 670 etc? Kind of pointless to just test a single high end card.
gaminglives  +   855d ago
To be honest, and speaking only for myself, I've played numerous games on console and PC, but the whole experience is always more... I dunno... fluid and immersive (in most cases) on the PC. Only thing that can sometimes kill PC gameplay is when you're expected to use the entire keyboard, but that's just because I prefer a controller and have done since before the Amiga days.
Gamer1982  +   855d ago
$4500? where you get that number from?? You can build the system that gets the highest FPS there at 1080p for under $1000. I did. That's over 60fps average at 1080p something these new consoles that aren't even released can only dream of. PC comes without a monthly fee, cheaper games and can do a whole lot more. The savings over the lifetime vs console easily outweighs the initial cost. Just like last generation when people said the ps3 was more expensive. It was but when you took off the cost of live it was cheaper. Apples and oranges.

I prefer to get more bang for my buck so went PC.
FlyingFoxy  +   855d ago
Well the difference is, for less than $1k you can build a PC with better in game options @ 1080p over console.. while usually keeping 60+fps. Something consoles don't stay good at. It's not all about resolution, plus games are always cheaper on PC.

It's only about double the cost of a console @ launch, and you pay thru the nose for launch games on consoles anyway.

Seeings as all the things you can do on a good PC like edit video, run emulators, free online play etc.. make it well worth the cost over a console.

Looks like someone didn't read the article.

Click here please. This disproves any claims that a capable gaming PC is expensive.

Using almost 10gig system RAM is a bit excessive.
MidnytRain  +   855d ago
Something seems wrong here. I planned on getting an FX 6300 for 1080p gaming. I saw it bottomed out at 30fps on this benchmark at Ultra 1440p and was pretty satisfied. But then as you go down the list, the 6300's performance drops as the settings and resolution are turned down. How does that make sense?

Optimization issue...
Feralkitsune  +   854d ago
Lower settings may put more strain on the CPU. That's what happens in the ARMA games. Higher settings are offloaded to the GPU , so if you have a GPU Higher settings work better than lower settings.
MidnytRain  +   854d ago

Why wouldn't the settings be offloaded to the GPU by default?
FlyingFoxy  +   855d ago
Interesting benchmarks, shows Intels CPU's are still pretty strong in comparison to AMD's. A Quad core Intel CPU recommended and for AMD the 6 core.
Letros  +   855d ago
Usually that's how it has been, Intel outperforms AMD on half the core count.
Kleptic  +   855d ago
Intel's per core performance is significantly better than AMD's current 'piledriver' lineup...

Around December AMD will finally release Kaveri, with 'steamroller' cores, which will be a much needed boost for AMD's cpu offerings...

Its definitely NOT the time to be buying an AMD cpu...8 cores in the 8350 is fine and great, but each individual core is pretty dated...

Intel is definitely in front of AMD cpu wise right now...But Intel seemingly has no interest in aggressive as get what you pay for...

Neonridr  +   855d ago
I have an i7 (first gen) with a Radeon 7870 and 16GB of ram. Looks like I'm hovering right at the recommended line. Like the article says, the video card only has 2GB of RAM, so it will be interesting to see what sacrifices I may have to make. I don't play above 1920x1080 so I may be able to play on Ultra setting and it still run good.

^you should be fine for 1080...don't use MSAA, use the deferred one, and i bet you'll be all over 60fps with some minor tweaks...maybe even on ultra, but definitely on least for the retail version...

One thing with this article...there are reports all over battlelog of windows 7 problems...something with major stuttering...and i'm guessing that is why in some cases there were minimums down around 5...That is WAY beyond normal cpu bottlenecking (as it seems to happen more frequently on the weaker cpus)...that is planetside 2 disaster area...

most are saying windows 8 64 bit doesn't have any of this in the beta...maybe dx11.1 is finally doing something? who knows...

Not to mention this is benchmarking with a Beta. I am sure there will be more optimized drivers upon release that could increase performance slightly too. I am not worried if I can't max out the settings, I am sure the game will still look pretty with a few settings downgraded slightly.
Miskonius  +   854d ago
I think those people who are complaining dont have enough ram. You need at least 10Gb of system ram to play BF4 beta
WeedyOne  +   854d ago
I got a 1st gen i7 and a 7970 Ghz Ed, but only 6GB of ram. Most games don't use more than 4 so I was a little shocked to see this game eating 10GB!

Should be able to get some RAM super cheap on black Friday though!
HarryB  +   855d ago
How in the world can you talk about bench marks when the game is unplayable on pcs that are higher then the recommended specs. Theres sound and graphic problems even with the lates drivers.
